"I was born to perform and connect with audiences. Rooted in medical and technical backgrounds and earning a B.S. in Biopsychology with honors from University of Michigan, I completed a pre-med curriculum. It was in college through the continual study of theater, dance and communications that I realized my true passion...connecting with and empowering people through speaking and performing. 


A lifelong passion and love for dance continues as I choreograph collaboratively and teach repertoire dance in all styles to adults. It was my love of performance and connecting with audiences, realized at age 5 on the dance stage, that continues to ignite me today in speaking, improv comedy, and dance.  Click here for video samples of my dance choreography and performance


An intense curiosity and passion for growth, research and learning fuels me. Influenced by my grandfather, a dentist ahead of his time in holistic health, and my father, a pathologist and dermatologist, I appreciate the balance between science & technology and spirituality, emotion, the arts, nature & beauty and look at the world through a holistic lens.


I also have extensive experience in virtual event and live broadcast hostingTV and on-camera hosting, voiceover, trade show presentations, as well as corporate communications as a producer, director, and scriptwriter. Samples of some of my video production work are located here.  


With a love of nature, animals, the arts, dance, fitness and gardening, spending time on holistic health and contemplating all things beautiful and connected is a daily practice. A few words to describe me are passionate spirit, powerful, authentic, truth speaker, connected, grounded in love, soulful."
